【テキスタイルの箱舟 Ark of Textile】

ノアが様々な種を載せて大洪水を乗り切ったように、テキスタイルのクリエーションに関する諸々の種をギューっと詰めた船をプロジェクトのイメージとしてスタート=出航しました。各産地の素材、工場独自の技法を羅針盤に、アイディアという航路を練り、新しい表現を求めて試作という【航海】を続ける全10回のサーフェイスコレクションプロジェクトです。皆様にご覧いただく展覧会、展示会を【寄港】と位置付けています。海のように深く豊かなテキスタイルの世界に関わるたくさんの人とつながり、新しい航路を発見するプロジェクトに育てていきたいと思います。

This collection is entirely focused on the eternal respect for nature - origin of our inspiration, and the loss of the diversity in wild lives. The concept of this collection proudly presented here by textile designer MADOKA OSHIKANE refers to “fused textile” - an experimental hybrid between materials and technologies, majestically realised here by the technologies historically retained by the now-diminishing textile factories.

As Noah took every species of animal life on his ark in order to save from the deluge, an ark of creativity, in which various competent seeds of textile are cautiously kept, is now finally arriving here at a “port” after having sought in the “ocean” for the novel expression of textile other than mere colour-pattern, with the aid of the technologies as a “navigating compass” under the rich enlightenment by the “beacons” of ideas.
